... that when we were watching the Olympics the other night and the pole vault was on, I almost died of cuteness when the pole vaulter missed and Mason yelled "one more time!" like "it's ok! try again! you can do it. one more time!". Seriously. My heart almost burst right then and there.
... that I went through our cabinets and drawers the other day and threw away some things that had gotten pushed to the back and forgotten. I found some extra sauces from Chick-fil-A (I LOVE the Chick-fil-A sauce and Seth loves the honey mustard) and McDonald's (I love the BBQ sauce) that we had saved but I literally had no clue how long we'd had them for. Funny thing is, they don't have an expiration date on them (which should worry me in general) so really, even when you get them from the restaurant, you don't even know how old they are. Hence the reason they had to go.
... that when I found out that Betsy and Laura Jean weren't continuing their "Guys Behind the Blog" series, I was a bit sad! Today was supposed to be August's link up so I clicked over to find out what the questions were for this month and saw that July was their last month hosting. I loved interviewing Seth each month and asking him the questions. I definitely don't need to take on any more responsibilities BUT I love this link up so much that I'm thinking of continuing it... would anyone be interesting in linking up if I hosted? Or co-hosting? Was anyone still participating with them? I kind of don't want to commit myself to hosting another link up but I really liked this one!
... that a month ago, if you asked me what I wanted to for my birthday next month, I would have been able to name a bunch of things. But now? I have no clue! I'm hoping to do a little round up soon and hopefully I can think of something! Why is it that you always want tons of stuff when you don't need it but when it's birthday time or Christmas, you can't think of anything?
... that when I got a cut on my finger the other day and needed a band aid, I purposely reached for a Paw Patrol band aid. I claim I bought them for Mason and really, I did, but he rarely, if ever, uses band aids and I just... like the cute Paw Patrol ones (and the Cars ones when we had them) better than regular band aids. I use the excuse that it's because I have a kid, but really, I prefer them.
... that I drove to the Starbucks slightly farther away the other day JUST so I could go through the drive thru instead of parking and going inside.
... that I hate the middle spot at the Costco gas station. I can't parallel park to save my life so thankfully there's enough room to pull in forward, but I still hate it. I secretly inner cheered that the guy in the back spot left first the other night.
... and then the middle spot person left. So I pulled all the way forward and stopped in the middle (I'm cool with stopping in the middle, just not parking in the middle - don't ask - it's weird, I know) and seriously thought the person behind me should thank me.
